Re: Automatic Document Feeder not working/HP L7680

Bought a HP7680 and the autofeeder did not work, new out of the box.

when I pressed the fax black button and chose to use the autofeed then pressed the black fax button again, I was prompted to put paper in the autofeed. I had paper in the feed and just received a beeping sound.

Called HP tech support. the tech knew less than I did about this product. Absolutely no help.

Because I had allowed the product to sit in the box in a closet for over a year the company would not help resolve the issue.

If anyone has any ideas, your help would be appreciated.

I have removed and reassembled the roller system. I have rotated the black roller bar behind the assembly to "engage" the rollers. Nothing has helped.

Re: Automatic Document Feeder not working/HP 8500

Hi,

Anybody know how to resolve this issue, so frustrating.

when i send a fax out the paper goes through the feeder but halfway through it rolls back and i get an error message.

i have turned off the printer, pulled out the plug, checked for any loose paper.

Ran a fax test from the printer and from my computer, both confirm fax is working properly.

Help????

On my officejet pro 8500 the adf works in copy mode, but the motor doesn't even run in scan. I will have not tried fax.

Re: Automatic Document Feeder not working/HP 8500

just un boxed the replacement 8500 a plus and of course the ADF dosent work!!!!!! from the thousands of views on this site - my take is this model is severly defected!!! i will return mine to costco and the replacement back to sender . i will look at buying a different brand- this is a waste of time, energy, and effert. i praise the loyalty of costco to its customers...

I have never had this issue with any HP printer.  I cannot get the automatic document feeder to recognize that paper is inserted.  Is the machine broken or did I fail to install something correctly?

Help! Just had my HP8500A Premium printer/fax for a little over a year and the automatic document feed is not working. That is not cool! What can you do to help?

Re: Automatic Document Feeder not working/HP 8500

Document feeder isn't working - just like everyone else.  The paper goes in 1/3 of the way, and then stops. Can't figure out how to open it up to look at the rollers inside.  It worked when I first bought it 3 years ago - now not at all.  Can anyone help?
